Org Vit E 400iu Mixed 90 caps


Tocopherol, or Vitamin E, is a fat-soluble in eight forms that is an important antioxidant.  Vitamin E is often used in skin creams and lotions because it is believed to play a role in encouraging skin healing and reducing scarring after injuries such as burns.  The oil is usually sourced from Soy beans and Sunflower seeds.

Add 10-20% to massage blends, creams and lotions.   Use neat or blended with Rosehip for reducing scarring.

Natural vitamin E exists in eight different forms or isomers, four tocopherols and four tocotrienols.  All isomers have a chromanol ring, with a hydroxyl group which can donate a hydrogen atom to reduce free radicals and a hydrophobic side chain which allows for penetration into biological membranes.  There is an alpha, beta, gamma and delta form of both the tocopherols and tocotrienols, determined by the number of methyl groups on the chromanol ring.  Each form has its own biological activity, the measure of potency or functional use in the body.

In foods, the most abundant sources of vitamin E are vegetable oils such as sunflower, canola, corn, soybean and olive oil.  Nuts, sunflower seeds, seabuckthorn berries, and wheat germ are also good sources.  Other sources of vitamin E are whole grains, fish, peanut butter, and green leafy vegetables.  Fortified breakfast cereals are also an important source of vitamin E in the United States. Although originally extracted from wheat germ oil, most natural vitamin E supplements are now derived from vegetable oils, usually soybean oil.
